Students donate to Make A Wish South Carolina Charity

Students in Ms. Johnson’s Integrated Business Applications class at Genesis Education Center, the alternative school in Greenwood, South Carolina were given an assignment to research and create a PowerPoint presentation about a charity of their choice. Students were asked to include in their research specific information about the charity; what does it do and who benefits from their service.  Each student presented their slideshow to the class.

After the presentations were completed, Ms. Johnson asked the students to select a charity from the list and as a class effort donate to one of the charities.  The students agreed and selected the Make-A-Wish Foundation researched by Justin Jackson. Ms. Johnson told them that she would match whatever they donated to help with the charity.   As students began to donate money, students from Ms. Johnson’s Character Education class joined in the effort to support the charity.

The students raised $77.25 in one month.  Genesis Education Center submitted a check for $154.50 to the Make-A-Wish South Carolina, a local chapter in Greenville, South Carolina to help grant a wish to a child.  The lesson helped them learn how to reach out to others and make a difference in a child’s life.

Pictured are some of the students who participated in the activity.
